Everyone's circumstances are different; therefore the way in which we support our clients and their families varies depending on their personal wants and needs. This page provides some examples of the way in which we have supported clients and paints a picture of the lengths we go to.
We provide care and support to a young woman with Autism Spectrum Disorder and also has severe learning disabilities. The young woman lives with her mother and older sister in the community.
Thelma came originally from London where she had lived all her life. Thelma met her husband there and following their marriage, Thelma had given up her employment to support her husband. Thelma & her husband had no children. Thelma and her husband, who worked for the government had lived all over the world during their marriage, primarily in the Australian region.
We were recently given a complex case involving an 88 year old lady who, due to her dementia, had deteriorated and was no longer able to live in her own home independently. She had moved in with her son, however, due to the severity of her dementia, she felt very angry and bitter about the situation and directed it at her son. She felt he just wanted to sell her house and she lashed out at him on a regular basis.
We have worked with Harlow Council to reshape a sheltered housing complex in an extra care housing scheme. The benefit is that the service users now have a care agency on site 24/7 to assist with their care needs and daily living.
This social club was set up in memory of one of own care workers that sadly died at a young age. The aim was to provide social inclusion to not only our service users, but also residents within the local community.
